RDJ Recently warned Central (West) Midlands Today
Oddly there was no ident on the West Mids ITV News Central just now and the headlines were also completely dropped. West seems to be live so guessing there might have been a last minute change.

Hannah Bechelet with the last bulletin before Christmas announcing at the end that it’s her last one for a while as she’s off on maternity leave.

To be honest I didn’t even realise she was pregnant.

Looks like it's an all day issue, Midlands Today mentioned the weather in the later bulletin will be for "the whole Midlands".

He meant the whole of Midlands will be covered by the national forecast shown immediately after the bulletin

Perhaps the odd bulletin over the decades but he was mainly a reporter.
